High-order Harmonics - A Coherent Source In the Xuv Range
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Journal of Nonlinear Optical Physics & Materials
We review the main results concerning high-order generation processes from the point of view of a potential user of this new source of XUV radiation. The perspectives for optimizing the source, both in efficiency and in spectral range, its characteristics and in particular, its coherence properties, are discussed. Finally, we describe two experiments, which demonstrate the usefulness of the harmonics as a short-pulse, coherent source in the XUV domain.
